Re: A Security Tip If You're Traveling

To be honest I am always amazed at how casual people are with their boarding passes. I have seen passengers who have just boarded the plane, throw their passes away before they land. Totally uncaring that the check in staff have attached sticker relating to their suitcase on the pass. Then there are others who leave the pass in the trolley they have used to collect their luggage.....Rolleys

One man's trash is another man's fortune. It's just the way the world is these days. I suggest everyone  invests in a shredder. £20 and peace of mind. We spend hundreds of pounds on electronics but skimp on our security.

Re: A Security Tip If You're Traveling

Had a shredder for years. I was quite gobsmacked when Ray bought it out of the blue...but I use it more than he ever does...
